I just went through the process & was approved despite the fact i'm attending a continuing ed department. Here's the link

Forum Housekeeping:

Adding "Random Deals/Sales" to the title to help clarify the thread's main topic and purpose.

Hopefully, more people will post a deal or flash sale of the day that they come across.

OK people I was waiting on Black Friday to upgrade my phone. Costco just leaked their BF Ad. In it they are advertising the Samsung S10 for $429.99 with the stipulation of 'requires activation on device payment'

now a lot of time you need to activate a new line for these deals which is why I was holding off cause the savings is eaten by having to have a new line of service that costs $20 a month and you need to keep that line for $24 months. However this just says device activation and not device activation on a new line or new line required, or anything similar to that. So do you think I am interpreting it correctly that the phone is $429.99 and there is a one time fee for them to activate the phone or do you think it will require a new line?

Given that this is Black Friday I am thinking just the one time activation fee

$630 was about what i paid for the s9note last BF for a verizon platform You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

the only requirement was that i sign up for the monthly no interest payments for the device but i could pay it off at any time. i think it worked out to be >$25/m
that might be what they're trying to say

I think so too, otherwise it really makes no sense cause the phone base price is $899. So $430 plus the new line for 24 months ($20*24) would be $480 which is $900 which is no savings at all so I have to take it as $430 plus whatever the activation fee is (usually about $20 to $30) which is still a good savings on a $900 phone.

Just gotta wait for what Verizon is going to do as well to see which is better
